    Wow, did Jeff Wells write the home-page blurb about this video?

    David,
    Thanks for reminding us of this interview. A jovial, soft spoken fellow who seems to have lived as much as he could when he could. I’m reading he had been diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer, so perhaps he could not face such a decline in activity. Thoughts to his wife and kids and his last surviving brother, Ridley.

    His first short film, an adaptation of Ambrose Bierce’s One of the Missing is available to view here.

    David, I love your breakdown of the Dargis tribute on the front page. You hit the right highlights. And yes, Dargis gets Tony Scott.

    Ray Pride RULES.

What about replacing Mr. Spacey with another actor? Mr. Plummer, perhaps.
“That would theoretically be fantastic,” Mr. Rothman said he responded. “But I have supervised 450 movies over the course of my career. And what you are saying is impossible. There is not enough time.”

“Would I like to see Wormwood in a theater on a big screen? You betcha. I’d be disingenuous to argue otherwise. But we’re all part of, like it or not, an industry, and what Netflix offers is an opportunity to do different kinds of films in different ways. Maybe part of what is being sacrificed is that they no longer go into theaters. If the choice is between not doing it at all and having it not go to theaters, it’s an easy choice to make.”
